In 2019, Jessa and husband Ben Seewald, Joe and Kendra Duggar, Josiah and Lauren Duggar and Josh and Anna Duggar all welcomed children. The baby boom continued the following year when John David and Abbie Duggar welcomed a baby followed by Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth and Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo. Joe and Kendra were surprisingly pregnant again in 2020 with baby No. 3. They gave birth to daughter Brooklyn in February 2021.
That being said, not every Duggar child was always in a rush to have as many kids as their parents. Jill shocked fans when she revealed in October 2020 that she used “non-hormonal birth control,” such as barrier methods, which is not condoned by her religious family.
“Growing up, it was ingrained in me that if you don’t have as many kids as you’re able to, that there’s something wrong with that,” Jill told People at the time. “But there was a shift in me where I felt like it wasn’t wrong if you decide as a couple that it’s best for you to wait.” She and husband Derick Dillard share sons Israel David and Samuel Scott.
The TLC star added, “Children are a blessing, but that doesn’t mean that at all costs you should have as many kids as possible … I think you need to do what’s healthiest and best for your family.”
However, that didn’t stop them from trying again for another addition to their family — the pair announced they were expecting baby No. 3 in February 2022.
“We are excited to announce that God has answered our prayers and we are expecting our rainbow baby due July 2022!” they revealed on their family blog. “We are so thankful for a healthy baby and pregnancy so far, and we look forward to finding out the gender soon!”
They then opened up about Jill’s devastating miscarriage in their 2022 blog post. “Ever since we were devastated last fall by the miscarriage of our sweet baby, River Bliss, we have prayed that, if it was God’s will, he would bless us with another baby,” Jill and Derick added.
